The first stage in Yorkshire started in Leeds on July 5th 2014 and saw the riders go through Ilkley and Skipton, and then through the heart of the Dales via Kettlewell and Hawes. From there they turned across, up and over Buttertubs Pass into Upper Swaledale and down Swaledale into Reeth. Hurtling through Reeth Village Green the race proceeded through Grinton, over to Leyburn before turning south through Ripon to the stage finish in Harrogate.
This was the second time Britain has hosted the Grand Depart and the fourth visit in all following a single stage in Plymouth in 1974 and two across the south of England 20 years later.

Yorkshire won the bid to stage the Grand Depart in December, beating rivals including Florence, in Italy.
The first stage will be 118miles (190km) long with the second stage both longer, at 124 miles (200km), and more challenging in terms of hills. Christian Prudhomme, Tour de France director, said: 'When we visited Yorkshire, it really captured our imagination and it has stayed long in our hearts. Since the resounding success of the Grand Depart in London in 2007, we were very keen to return to the UK.'
